I have installed a new 70mai Dash Cam A800s. The unit worked well for 1 day. After the initial setup I have installed a SD card, and connected the camera with the 70mai app on my android phone with the English language selected as the language for the user interface. After the first day, when the camera turns on, it is trying to calibrate the ADAS function (even though I have turned it off) and has switched to Mandarin language (even though the user interface was set to English). While it's trying to calibrate none of the buttons work with the exception of the power button. It has the wifi turned off, therefore I can't connect to it via the app to try to change the settings.
Since the wifi is off and none of the menu buttons work I can't get it out of the calibration menu. I have tried to hard reset it by pressing the power button for 15 seconds (or 5 times, as stated in some forums), but it just keeps coming back to the calibration when I turn it on. As such the unit is useless.
Is this a faulty device? How can I reset it to factory settings?
